I cannot believe that it is P-day already! Sis. Kelly and I have been busy meeting with investigators, members, and less-active members. 

The most notable thing that happened this week is that we finally had a member dinner with 하영, 건희, the young women, and the bishops family. It was really fun and our two investigators loved getting to know people their own age. 하영 really loves the YW and I know that the YW will love her. They have already started planning a YW activity specifically for 하영. I think it will be only a matter of time before 하영 is actively participating in Young Women.

Another member in the ward has made it her mission to help us teach our investigators and learn Korean. She is always quizzing us on random Korean terms and asks us to read things for her. It is really cute, but I don't think she knows that we can read in Korean. We don't always know what we are reading, but we can read. ㅎㅎㅎ The funny thing is that it is not just her, but a lot of the members have made it their mission to take care of us. It is really I have no doubt that we will be fluent in Konglish in no time! 

English Class was this past Wednesday and it was really fun. Sis. Kelly was not there because she was on an exchange with the Sister Training Leader. So Sis. Lyman came in her place. Sis. Lyman is from Blanding, Utah and has been here for a little over 2 months. Sis. Lyman and I were in charge of teaching the teenage English class. Essentially, there was a lot of laughter, charades, and candy. The YM/YW have started to open up to the missionaries. We plan on inviting a few of them to go street contacting with us. 

Our other investigators are doing really great. Kim Che Sook really loves conference talks and has been carefully studying the footnotes in every talk. She has a huge desire and wants to know if this church is true. 

Sis. Kelly and I are slowly experimenting with more and more Korean food. We haven't been to McDonald's lately, which is really good...but we still have yet to find a food that she really likes. The day we find something, you will be the first one to know. I have taken a new approach to introducing her to food though, I just don't tell her what it is until after she tastes it. The other day, a member fed Sis. Kelly her version of American was hilarious! Essentially, Sis. Kelly ate ham, pan fried onions, and a garlic stem wrapped in seaweed. It was great, but our breath stunk for hours!

The weather is slowly starting to get warmer...

I love you!
